that obama during the debate concluded even more to me that he is not what we need over the next four years. he has talked about the same things for the past year during the campaign, which is providing more safety nets for lower income people, putting in more government regulations on small businesses and big businesses, he has not taken china seriously, taking american jobs and being a money manipulator. he has added so much to the national debt to that he promised to reduce. i know it is not all of his fault and the congress is to blame, too, but he is the guy that has to take charge and get people realizing we are on a path to destruction. i think we need a new president in 2012. >> will also take some tweets. karl rove says -- next is a viewer watching us from oklahoma who is a democrat. this is gary. >> thank you. i thought the president held up on mr. romney. mr. romney comes out and tells you he will tax -- not lower taxes on the rich by cutting out deductions. just like the president said, he did not hammer him enough on it. even if you add up all of the deductions and then t

smaller andgrowing smaller, shrinking, and there is an impact of president obama not pushing as many throughout as bush did. the courts are so important, and they should be discussed in this campaign. i hope in this next debate -- it is important that this has gone under the radar. the presidents are not individual -- not just individuals. they come with advisers. president reagan's nominee robert bork was rejected by the senate for being way out of the mainstream in this country. he did not believe the equal protection clause applies to women. he is opposed to the voting rights act and the silver rights act of 1964. and he believed that corporations are people. he would play a very destructive role in a court of common sense, fairness, justice, diversity of equality and opportunity. those are not left-right issues. i think we need to take a hard look at the courts and the political intensity gap, where the right does understand the court and its powers but the progressive, liberal democratic community has stepped back and not engage with that judicial process or the courts as effect

, 2200 for president obama. don is on our democrats' line. >> i was disappointed in the president's performance last night. i watched it on c-span. 's plan goes into effect next year, it is not going to affect me, because i'm 65. but i'm worried about the seniors and the seniors to come. somebody needs to ask romney when he talks about, when he has a plan for the children of 26 to be on their parents' insurance, he has a plan, and he wants to send that to the private market. how much is that going to cost? that is the question. i was totally disappointed in the president's performance last night. >> let's go to the republicans' line. this is paul. >> it would be nice in the next debate if they had eight fact -- a factcheck.com screen, or if somebody said something, factcheck.com either validated that were debunked it. >> if you watched c-span2 last night, we were running some tweets, and i bet there are some sites doing that, but we had some real time tweets. >> i went back and forth between four stations -- >> [laughter] >> and i went through the aftermath of the debate, just to se

took time this morning to look it up. it also states that construction will not catch up in the next 10 years. i also have to take a look at this and feel that president obama's policies have to be contributing to this -- these increase jobs in the future. thank you. guest: thank you. i think that is absolutely right. at least for the president and the president's campaign staffers in chicago, this month's numbers did give them a chance to stand to the republican critics out there, including presidential candidate mitt romney, you have been criticizing us for the last few years and for the last few months. the jobless rate goes from 8.1% to 7.8% gives the president a better footing with telling the people that all of the investments may in the last -- made in the last few years are working. we have come to bank far to turn back now. host: -- we have come too far to turn back now? host: a question says is it possible to read the numbers? this is suspicious. guest: i, personally, do not think this is possible. most economists and economists who have been around for a long time would ag

question that has an obvious answer. are you hearing my name six times for every time you hear obama or romney's name 100 times? if my name was just being mentioned in line with where i'm calling, i think my 6% would be 14% and i would be the next president of the united states. host:. from pittsburgh -- gary from pittsburgh. caller: i saw your debate about three months ago. nailed him to the wall. he looked kind of stupid. i was reading a lot about the democrats and republican party. the campaigns of obama and romney are similar. read the history about them and the trilateral commission. they are controlling both parties. that is a scary thing. i really respect your issues and i think you're knowledgeable. independent parties are being played by ron paul. i wish there was more strength for you. i just wish you well as you continue to -- guest: thank you. host: gary johnson. guest: when i entered into the republican race for the nomination, i thought it was going to be hard to marginalize two candidates onstage talking about the same thing. i am talking about ron paul and myself. i foun

online from a group. that would be my guess where you go next. the other political thing will happen is that whatever the outcome of the election, democrats use this as a populist appeal. they say they are with the working guy. i think obama signals that he would pursue a constitutional amendment. did he said is not possible. he may go door-to-door on this. some polls suggest the eu would be lower by it used to be just an last few cycles, that that was it beauregard's -- a bar partisan rally. there is a potential for one party to take this as a baton. >> at the same time the bipartisan ground has disappeared, it has become a much bigger issue among democrats. senator find gold was a patsy to the democratic leadership. in many ways, that was a miracle. what you have now in the previous congress until 2010, led a majority of democrats supporting the fair elections now act. it is deeply imbedded at the highest levels. of the have not really seen that before. if democrats were to take back the house, potentially, you have a different political scenario. republicans would have to respond to

not get the job done. in the next commercial break you have an ad that says barack obama was never a nice guy, he is a radical socialist lunatic who's trying to take your job. the more money did not feed into a larger narrative in a way that i think the romney campaign would have preferred. a second reason why it is less effective now is under sec rules, the super pac campaign are able to get lowest available rate for their advertising right now. super pacs are not allowed to do that. they are spending far more, sometimes three times as much, and to get the same money. did the third reason i think you're seeing things less effective, in the last month or two, obama's citizens are waking up and spending more dollars. a bunch of people were coming at the last minute. we have not really seen that. the small dollar fund-raising model has been able to expand nicely for obama toward the end. romney has had to spend a good fortune in september going to fund-raisers trying to collect these $2,500 checks. he has been very successful. it really was a strategic disadvantage at that time in the

over the next few years, from the perspective of president obama, and he has made no secret of the fact of his initiative that he is eager to pursue step-by-step in reductions of nuclear weapons. that is one priority goal for this administration. it is a preamble to the start treaty. it is a goal they have both articulated. i think we will be looking for ways to accomplish those for the reductions. it laid out three goals for the next round of negotiations. he said we want to seek reductions in non-strategic nuclear weapons, non-deployed nuclear-weapons, and for the reductions and deploy nuclear weapons. to those three categories are new to the arms reduction process. we've always gone after weapons that are deployed on their delivery vehicle. this is what we have always counted and reduced. this is what you can see even from overhead satellites. it is important to recognize the next age of arms control but president obama has laid out is very ambitious. it to require us to take a good look at verification technologies and how we conduct inspections. it is a significant challenge.
